Cherry color with no head. Raspberry aroma and flavor. Also, a bit sour in the flavor. Flat on the palate.

Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 19, 2009
courtesy of oh6gdx - fully cloudy orange colour with a moderate head retention; aroma of hay and raspberries, sweet with a hint of acidity; moderate malt body, gentle finish of raspberries with some residual sugars - boring

On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Sweet raspberry aromas dominate the light hints of toated malt and wheat. Flavor is basically all raspberry, but watered down from the aromas from earlier. Finishes rather nondescriptly with some toasted cereal. Not my favorite, but at least it didn’t have the burnt nut aroma most of the rest of Abita’s lineup seems to have.

"an ok, but standard entry into the berry-wheat catergory. nothing new here. not bad, not good. refreshing on a hot summer day, but that’s about it."

hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2004
On tap. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small head. Nothing too special - aroma and tastes of raspberries and wheat. Light and bland tasting. I’ll pass on this in the future.

deyholla (12582) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy gold with a white head. Aroma consisted of fruits and a touch of malts. Flavor had the presence of raspberries and while easy drinking, it is not complex in anyway.

GBof A PA-on tap-pours an off white/purple tint head and hazy gold color. Aroma is fruity, grassy. Taste is raspberry, grassy, wheat. OK carbonation.

2.2
rosenbergh (11931) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. BB 01/11... From a gas station in New Orleans, LA.
Hazy orange amber colour with a small white head. Pilsner malt and mild grassy bitterness in the aroma. Mild sweetness, raspberries... or some other berries and malt in a pilsnery flavour. Not very good or tasty.

2.1
shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle. Sweet raspberry malt aroma - a bit like the sweeter lambic framboise beers. Moderately cloudy - pinkish amber color with small head. Slightly sour, light raspberry malt flavor - really expected it to be sweeter from the aroma. Very little body. Pretty weak and bland.
